I believe that robots,not spaceships,should be the focus of technological development in the future.First,robots are much less expensive to develop and build than spaceships.The cost of any spaceship is many millions of dollars more than the cost of the most sophisticated robot.Second,robots have far useful applications on Earth right now.Even the robots we have now can work in dangerous conditions that humans cannot,such as extreme heat or cold.They can rescue people in collapsed mines,take apart bombs work underwater,and help with delicate microscopic surgery.They are useful to society now in ways that spaceships are not.Third,robots can improve the life of the individual on a personal level.Robots can be developed to clean the house,do the shopping,cook,help children with difficult homework,play games,and keep track of the health of their human owners.NO spaceship will ever affect the lives of individuals in such a way.
In conclusion,our lives will be better,sooner,when robots receive the attention,money,and time that spaceships get now.

Always we have heard people talking about the height and the fall of empires. All of them have their apogee and its decay. This old saying reflects an inexorable destiny.
At the moment, news are around the horizon of the United States, the superpower militarily dominating the globe.The United States has entered in an economic and social slopedown. The first alert is related to the fall of the working middle-class , and to what I consider the less and unfair equitable distribution of wealth. Without a doubt, this is a qualitative change in the North American society, with direct consequences for its democracy and its political future.
Finally, the war and the construction of a new State in Iraq, the high expenses of the foreign policy in Africa and the Middle East.The expensive commitments related to the military defence that the United States has with the European Union, and an economic policy that favours the escape of North American money towards more promissory countries, in which the working hour is cheaper than the Us or Europe, this definitely increases the deficit of the country.Then, will the United States be able to maintain his great superpower status? It depends, more than nothing, of its political class. This political class ,the capacity and the will to revert these tendencies, and to plan an economic policy outside the accepted globalization?.
So far, neither the Congress nor the White House have demonstrated to have those capabilities.


Our local water company SAT advises the population in what way each family must ration the use of our water and also tell us not to waste the precious liquid.However, the same company allows that on a daily basis thousands of litres in almost all the streets of Tafí Viejo are spilled. For example, in Eva Perón, Corrientes, La Rioja, Tucumán,Reconquista and many more streets. In what refers to avenues, almost all of them are wasting our water, the wasting of water in great amounts are historical. There are zones that count on this service only four hours per day; others, people must get up early in order to to get water for the rest of the day. In our CAPS, where hygiene is so important, they have the same problem too. Many schools are deprived of the water service completely without concerning the danger of diseases that this terrible fact could cause to children and teachers as well. The funny thing of this is that we must pay the total of the bill, when we should have our fair discount. The equivalent of the lack of provision during the period in which they carry out these cuts. Once and for all they must invest to provide a basic solution to this problem. Only then we will be able to talk about great things done by the irresponsible SAT !


Like a native inhabitant, proud tucumano of our land, I went with my family to visit the blessing Christ and his new set of powerful lights, located in the hills of San Javier. It was all an excellent adventure. We moved from the University City ( 6 km of distance approximately towards the Christ). Then all of a sudden around a dozen of horses appeared walking along the sides of the motorway. The danger that it entails is proportional to the irresponsibility of the ignorant owners. This is repeated every single day .Now,what about the responsible organisms controlling that horses in our roads? Is it so difficult to detect and to punish those who are the irresponsible owners of more or less 12 horses that take a nice walk by The San Javier Hills ? Or are we waiting a new accident to happen?, just then,we will protest ?

At 3846 metres of height, in a deserted landscape in the Andes, there exist the remains of an ancient pre-Incaic empire of warriors plenty of legends and mysteries, it is one of the most controversial archaeological sites all over the world.
When I looked at the monuments of Tiahuanaco, I got impressed by the perfection and majesty of these monolithic buildings that have resisted to wind and ice over thousands years. Archaeologists agree about the fact that the monoliths of Tiahuanaco have been built by the same culture in the period around 1200 b.C., but their opinions are different about the origins of this culture. Since the nearness to the Titicaca Lake, people ate fish . Tiahuanacotas warriors developed ceramics, with incisions and motifs, pictures in red, grey and white.I was told that the Tiahuanacotas warriors covered their heads with puma or jaguar skins wanting to achieve the agility and the savagery of these felines.
The central figure on the Sun Gate is the image of a face in tears.The most suggestive part of Tiahuanaco is the temple of Kalassasaya. There are three important monuments inside: the Ponce monolith, the monolith of the devotee and the famous Sun Gate, a huge arc cut in only one andesite piece. On the face are the most elaborated expression of the Tiahuanaco art. Up to today nobody has succeeded in explaining the origin of this population, able to build a metropolis on a sterile tableland. A theory involves Celtic navigators (that would explain the beard of the monolith). Other theories even more daring, take into consideration vanished continents and antediluvian cultures. But the mystery is still there.

ENTRY 36 The Benefits and Disadvantages of Homeschooling

I am trying to figure out whether homeschooling will work for any family.
Below you'll find some of the benefits and disadvantages of homeschooling. After reading it, you should be able to better identify whether or not homeschooling may be right for you and your family. If you take time to think about each benefit and disadvantage and apply it to your personal situation.

Benefits of Homeschooling
You get to...

  • Control what your children learn and when they learn it.

  • Protect your children from the negative influences they may encounter outside the home.

  • Teach more effectively by interacting with your children 1-on-1.

  • Address "big issues" with your children when you feel they're ready.

Potential Disadvantages of Homeschooling
You may have to...

  • Be very patient with your children when it seems they aren't learning anything at all.

  • Spend more money on your children's education than you're accustomed to.

  • Encourage your children even when you don't feel like it.

  • Justify homeschooling to family and friends who oppose your decision to learn at home.

Although no exhaustive, I hope this list of the benefits of homeschooling, and also the disadvantages of homeschooling, gives you valuable homeschooling information you can use to reach a decision.
Making the decision to homeschool is often a difficult process, but that process is worth it. You definitely wouldn't want homeschool if it's not right for you; and you definitely wouldn't want to miss the chance on homeschooling if it is right for you.
So, do your homeschool pros and cons research carefully with your family and take the time you need to make an informed decision.
